You know those things that you just don’t get….the ones that it takes you a really long time to understand, I mean years? Well, over the last week I have come to understand TWO very important things from my childhood, and believe me THEY ARE HUGE. Ready? Here goes….
- Those commercials, I think they were for Life cereal or something, now I understand. You remember how the kids always said, “Give it to Mikey, he doesn’t eat anything!” I never understood why they said that…..until last week. They gave it to Mikey as a test because if he would eat it….because he didn’t like anything…then it MUST be good.
- Trees in Halloween stories, etc. NEVER have leaves on them. I always thought as I was growing up, when I would see this in books, in a movie, or on TV it was just meant to make things look more spooky. NOPE! After living here in New York, I now understand it’s really just because in the fall…..during the month during which Halloween occurs….THERE ARE NO LEAVES ON THE TREES! How convenient, and how funny what a Southern girl doesn’t know until she moves to ‘the north’! ;0
Ta-daaaaa……that’s my revelation for the day. Just thought I’d share that with you. Maybe you guys had already figured it out, but it took me about 25 years. That’s a big deal!
